Pilots will meet Sept. 18 at 6:30 pm in the conference room at the Stevens Point Municipal Airport/Mattson Field to establish the Stevens Point Wisconsin Chapter of the IMC Club International.
Wanda Zuege, the Stevens Point Wisconsin IMC Club’s Chapter leader, started flying in 1990 at the Wild Rose Idlewild Airport in Wild Rose, Wisconsin, in a single-seat ultralight aircraft and was hooked ever since. Zuege started teaching others to fly in 2001 as a new flight instructor with Pegasus Aviation at the Stevens Point Airport. In 2005 she became owner and operator of Am I High Aviation, using an instrument certified Piper Cherokee 140 for training and rental.
In 2010 Zuege received four awards from the General Aviation Awards program and the FAA. She now has over 1,900 hours logged as a flight instructor for the private pilot certificate and/or the advanced instrument rating.
The inaugural gathering of the Stevens Point Wisconsin Chapter of the IMC Club is sponsored by the FAASTeam, and hosted by the Stevens Point Municipal Airport/Mattson Field, which is providing the conference room.
At the meeting, prospective members will be given the opportunity to interact with IMC Club founder and president Radek Wyrzykowski.
The IMC Club, through its worldwide chapters, provides organized “hangar flying” focused on building proficiency in instrument flying. Safety and proficiency are developed through education and experience. You can learn how you can use real world scenarios to increase your level of safety. An instrument rating is not required for attendance and membership in the IMC Club.
